It’s me I mean I’m super crazy that’s why recruitment is a very tough industry to be in. But Michael Page entirely I mean I think a lot of recruitment agencies do work on commission. But Michael Page does not offer commission. Instead they offer it’s a base salary that you receive plus a bonus. So it’s a quarterly bonus of course based on your billings you get a specific percentage of it. So that would be diced into play but it’s not it’s not commission. I guess. I just want to I need to be working at all times I’m on a roll. I cannot just not be working on something and not have anything not be working on any candidates. Short lists. Things like that. But that’s what drives me and motivates me because then I don’t want to go to work I don’t want to I don’t want to be spending all the hours just staring at a computer screen when there’s no activity going. So those are the factors that personally drive me. I know I’m very obsolete in that sense. But of course money is very you know empowering at times to have. But I wouldn’t say it’s the main driver.
